Trips In April 2011

Trips in April 2011

In case you wondered what it’s like here now..

In the Białowieża Forest all the woodpeckers are busy with their broods – either making nestholes, incubating or even feeding. We have successfully seen the whole set a number of times already this spring. Pygmy Owls are active in their territories and Hazel Grouse can also be seen without much effort.

In the Biebrza the flooding is quite extensive as for this time of the year. The Ruffs are gathering now in more and more numerous flocks and can be photographed in very close distance flying over, feeding and lekking. The White-winged, Whiskered and Black Terns have all shown up already, perhaps more will arrive soon. Aquatic Warblers and Citrine Wagtail arrived, still waiting for Rosefinches and Thrush Nightingales.

Below are a selection of pictures that I made during our several trips this month so far.

Enjoy!

  1. Hello,

    For about 17 years in a row I visit the Biebrza area, mainly the southern part. Every year it is different and brings other interesting sightings. This year we had one off the divers for a couple of days near the bridge over the Narew, Wizna.
    The latin name is: Gavia arctica. I will send you a picture if you give me your mail-adress. The Biebrza area is really great, and not only for birds. It’s an area wich a huge diversity of animals and plants and very interesting for wildlife photographers.

    Greetings, Jan
